Facilitating Accessibility in Support of Tourism

FAST addresses a service need, which is currently a key barrier to accessible travel: Personal Assistant Services (PAS) are often necessary to accessible travellers, but expensive to have. This is due to the fact that they are primarily controlled by travel agencies and the supply of such professionals is low.

To offer a solution, the project FAST provides a definition and job profile for so-called “Accessibility Travel Facilitators” (ATF) and develops the necessary training framework, comprising the training methodology, training curricula and didactic material. An Assessment Guide shall help address assessment strategies for the different stages of learning.
